LUXE / HEALTH tahini caramel slice…

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

One of my main motivations for launching my website earlier this year was to spread the word that healthy eating doesn’t need to be difficult and it certainly doesn’t need to mean deprivation!  I for one am a huge sweet tooth and one of my favourite things to do is recreate my favourite recipes with healthy ingredients.

This tahini caramel slice is an amalgamation of several raw recipes I’ve tried in the past and I hope you’ll agree that it’s a winner!  Just try not to eat it all at once…this last batch literally lasted two days in my house.  TWO DAYS!

LUXE / HEALTH Tahini Caramel Slice

Ingredients:

For the base:
2 heaped tbsp. raw almonds
1 heaped tsp. shredded coconut
1 tbsp. melted coconut oil
2 tsp. rice malt syrup

For the caramel:
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup rice malt
2 tbsp. melted coconut oil
A few cracks of sea salt

For the chocolate:
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
2 heaped tsp. rice malt syrup
2 heaped tbsp. cacao
1 tsp. tahini

Method:

  • In a food processor, pulse the base ingredients together until they are well combined and sticky.  Then, press into a baking paper lined tin (I use a fairly small deep one – but it just depends how thick you like each layer as you can literally set this in anything!)  Then pop the tin in the freezer to set.
  • Combine the ingredients for the caramel, just be careful not to mix too vigorously as over-mixing will cause the caramel to become a little grainy and you definitely want it smooth.  Then, spoon the caramel onto your base and place back in the freezer while you prep the chocolate.
  • In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients for the chocolate layer, making sure there are no lumps.  Pour the liquid chocolate over the caramel layer and pop the slice back into the freezer one final time.
  • Leave it for at least 2 hours to set properly, then use a large knife to cut into slices or squares and just try not to eat it all at once!!  If there are any leftovers, keep it in a sealed container in the fridge to prevent melting.
